How to import class rosters with CSV

3.png Audience: Administrators with school and district subscriptions

Administrators can set up your school's classes, teacher, and student accounts in bulk with CSV rostering. This is quicker and easier than creating accounts one at a time.

⚠️ We highly recommend creating NEW classes each year and archiving old ones instead of reusing the previous year's classes. Before you create any new classes for the upcoming school year, double-check that you have completed the steps in our End of Year Guide.
